In response to concern about the use of pesticides and their potentially damaging effects on people, wildlife, and the Chesapeake Bay watershed, the Governor established the Governor's Pesticide Council in January 1990 (Executive Order 01.01.1990.02). The Council reviewed pesticide management programs and recommended actions to safeguard the health of citizens and the environment. Pesticide manufacture, transport, storage, use, and disposal also were considered by the Council. In addition, the Toxics Management Strategy of the Chesapeake Bay Agreement was evaluated by the Council (Executive Order 01.01.1993.21; Executive Order 01.01.1997.05).
In November 2003, the Council was replaced by the Pesticide Advisory Committee within the Department of Agriculture (Executive Order 01.01.2003.49).
